97 - Is Our Children Learning?
How does one start down the long indigo path online these days? We're beyond the heyday of blogs and Tumblr and have moved into the realm of reels, reels that involve some guy telling you to tuck in your shirt or pull your hoodie through your beltloops. Reed and David discuss the prospect of starting out as a fashion neophyte these days and the various posts and influencers one might encounter. We also get into the following: Barns Shaggy Dog Cardigan The horror of long-sleeve Hawaiians Why anyone would want a half-zip western And Manresa Join Heddels+ for more and visit the Heddels Shop for 10% with the code BLOWOUT.

95 - Satchel B. Moore of Science & Kindness
In our niche, getting your jeans repaired is in many ways more important than buying them in the first place, and we had the opportunity to discuss with someone who knows all the ins and outs about both. Satchel B. Moore started Science and Kindness Denim Repair in the early 2010s to complement his day job selling raw denim at BlackBlue in Saint Paul, Minnesota and it has since grown into a fully-fledged repair studio doing any fabric fix or alteration you can imagine on a full roster of vintage machines. We chat with Satchel about everything from his early days buying Cheap Monday jeans from online proxies to fitting heavyweight flat-fells through a Union Special 43200G. You can start your own repair by visiting their website, scienceandkindness.net or on Instagram @scienceandkindness. Also, Heddels+ members get 1 Free Chainstitch hem, OR $35 dollars off any service, OR 20% off any service over $100 per month (shipping not included).

92 - Juvet and Jillows
Denim. Why is it funny? Is it because it's so ubiquitous or is there something comedic inherent to its nature that makes you laugh when you see it fashioned into a couch or boots or sunglasses? We attempt to answer this and other deep questions, like "Are the provisions in the new FABRIC Act proposed by US Senator Kirsten Gillibrand going to be enough to bring back American manufacturing jobs?" and "Should Albert soak his deadstock 501s?" All that and more above. Thank you to our sponsor, Science and Kindness Denim Repair.

Hear the full episode on Heddels+: http://heddels.plus Cat's out of the bag! I (David) am planning an extensive six month trip through Europe and Asia for the latter half of this year.

Reed and Albert help me sort through the good, bad, and ugly that will and won't fit into my bag.
